"A terrific range of counsel is available at this set, which in a little over 20 years has created a strong identity at the Bar." - Chambers & Partners 2012
Civil practice teams at Doughty Street Chambers have always recognised that our key strength lies in our multi-disciplinary approach to casework. With such diverse expertise our barristers are uniquely placed to address the cross-over issues often interwoven within our cases.
Administrative and public law is at the heart of Doughty Street Chambers with more than 50 barristers of all levels of call practicing in this area.
Doughty Street Chambers is one of the most international sets in the UK.
Sources admire its “genuine commitment to civil liberties” and its “incredibly long history of doing human rights work.”
Doughty Street has always been the home of prison law. Its practitioners have been involved in many of the leading House of Lords cases over the last two decades, cases which have brought about important advances in prisoners’ rights but also the development of key principles in human rights and administrative law.
In the last decade prison law has become markedly more complex. Over this time we have seen the creation of new sentences including the disastrous IPP, an ever growing prison population with the resulting pressure on the prison estate to deliver humane regimes and an increasing number of vulnerable prisoners. New populations of long-term prisoners, such as immigration detainees have emerged. Prison lawyers have also come to look beyond the prison gate as awareness has grown about the need to protect prisoners on release, or new coercive criminal justice measures such as control orders have been introduced.
Doughty Street fields a team of prison law practitioners across all call levels who have the additional expertise needed in all related fields such as human rights, immigration, national security, inquests, mental health law and community care.
